Holidays Abound

Two major world religions are celebrating their respective holidays this week. Muslims celebrated Milad-un-Nabi this past Friday. Which commemorates the birth of God's last messenger, Mohammad (PBUH). Muslims believe that Mohammad has simply added to the words delivered by the great messengers that preceded him. Which include Moses and Jesus (May Allah be pleased with them). Therefore the message of Moses is the message of Mohammad(PBUH) the message of Jesus is the message of Mohammad(PBUH). Accordingly Muslims take time out and reflect upon his teachings. After which we get a better sense of why he truly is a mercy for all mankind.

Incidentally this past Friday was also Good Friday which leads into Easter. I am woefully ignorant of the significance of these holidays. Does anyone care to enlighten me?
